A stretch of I-64 in Lexington reopened early Friday morning after police shut it down for more than seven hours due to a semi crash.
The accident happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday.
Firefighters say a truck hauling powdered concrete took a curve on the ramp from I-64 east to I-75 north too fast, causing the top-heavy semi to flip. The cab wedged against a rock wall, pinning the driver inside. Crews cut the driver out of the truck, and EMS transported him to UK Hospital.
Officials have not released the name of the driver or his condition.
The interstate reopened just after 12:30 a.m.
